These pillows were made at a Beginners Sewing Camp. Each camper was able to personalize their pillow with fabric selection, machine and hand stitching. This project is perfect for any beginner and will be a great addition to any rooms décor. The finished size of the pillow is 9" x 11"
The background fabric used is a Canvas Drop Cloth. The drop cloth was washed and dried to soften it slightly. The drop cloth provides a medium weight fabric for the body of the pillow. You can find these in various sizes. You get a lot of fabric for a reasonable price.
The monogram fabric is 100% cotton. You can find this fabric in the quilting section of most fabric stores. You can buy a "fat quarter" which will be more than enough for this project.
From the drop cloth cut 2 pieces measuring 10" x 12".
Cut a 10" square from the monogram fabric
Iron both pieces so they are crisp and flat
